A mission statement on the aims of World Outlook reads: "World Outlook specializes in weekly political analysis and interpretation of events for publications of the labor, socialist, colonial independence and black liberation movements." The first issue also carries a declaration "Our Stand" which goes on to say, "We will not observe any official or unofficial censorships, nor will we modify anything because of partisan considerations. Our commitment is to report the truth as accurately as we can without favor or slant...Unsigned material expresses, insofar as editorial opinion may appear, the position we stand on - revolutionary Marxism."
